One of the nation's most expensive land-use battles will face its fourth ballot test Tuesday when Orange County voters decide whether to replace plans for an airport at El Toro with zoning for a large urban park. Voters face the airport decision and dozens of others, from whether to reelect a judge charged with child molestation to consideration of several multimillion-dollar school bond proposals. Factions have battled for eight years over the 4,700-acre Marine base, which closed in July 1999.

The Huntington Beach City School District hasn't had a school-bond election in nearly 40 years. And the Laguna Beach Unified School District has never had one in its more than 120-year history. Both streaks will end June 5 when voters in those districts go to the polls in special elections. The $25-million Huntington Beach City School District bond measure faces minor grass-roots opposition. The $39-million Laguna Beach bond measure has no organized opposition.
